„Oppressive language does more than represent violence; it is violence; does more than represent the limits of knowledge; it limits knowledge.“

—  Toni Morrison American writer 1931 - 2019

Nobel Prize Lecture (1993)
Contexto: Tongue-suicide is not only the choice of children. It is common among the infantile heads of state and power merchants whose evacuated language leaves them with no access to what is left of their human instincts for they speak only to those who obey, or in order to force obedience. The systematic looting of language can be recognized by the tendency of its users to forgo its nuanced, complex, mid-wifery properties for menace and subjugation. Oppressive language does more than represent violence; it is violence; does more than represent the limits of knowledge; it limits knowledge. Whether it is obscuring state language or the faux-language of mindless media; whether it is the proud but calcified language of the academy or the commodity driven language of science; whether it is the malign language of law-without-ethics, or language designed for the estrangement of minorities, hiding its racist plunder in its literary cheek — it must be rejected, altered and exposed. It is the language that drinks blood, laps vulnerabilities, tucks its fascist boots under crinolines of respectability and patriotism as it moves relentlessly toward the bottom line and the bottomed-out mind. Sexist language, racist language, theistic language — all are typical of the policing languages of mastery, and cannot, do not permit new knowledge or encourage the mutual exchange of ideas.

„I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge —
That myth is more potent than history.
I believe that dreams are more powerful than facts —
That hope always triumphs over experience —
That laughter is the only cure for grief.
And I believe that love is stronger than death.“

—  Robert Fulghum, livro All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten

"Credo" at his official website http://robertfulghum.com/index.php/fulghumweb/credo/; this may be partly influenced by remarks of Albert Einstein in "What Life Means to Einstein: An Interview by George Sylvester Viereck" The Saturday Evening Post (26 October 1929): I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

„Knowledge brings more questions than answers“

—  Carlos Gershenson Mexican researcher 1978

Quote in: Carlos Gershenson (2007) Design and Control of Self-organizing Systems. p. 144
However Eduardo Gianetti (2001) Lies We Live By: The Art of Self Deception p. 136 stated:
Laplace's omniscient intelligence transcends the human condition and, what's more serious, seems to get ever more and more out of reach, as the advance of scientific knowledge brings more questions than answers.
Variante: Knowledge brings more questions than answers
